CRIMVOL: The international criminal justice voluntary sector research network
CRIMVOL is the international criminal justice voluntary sector research network and cross-sectoral collective of academics, practitioners and policymakers interested in criminal justice voluntary/ non-profit sector research and reform. It was launched here at the University of Sheffield and Professor Joanna Shapland is a member of the steering group.
CRIMVOL is chaired by Dr Philippa Tomczak, Senior Research Fellow, University of Nottingham School of Sociology and Social Policy and formerly University of Sheffield; Author of The Penal Voluntary Sector). CRIMVOL is now funded by a University of Nottingham Beacon Fellowship, but was established in 2017 with generous financial support from the British Academy (Rising Star Engagement Award), Leverhulme Trust (Early Career Fellowship), Socio-Legal Studies Association (Seminar Competition) and the University of Sheffield Centre for Criminological Research.
